Want to do the CT but don't have the time for a real through hike?

Come join us for a few sections of the CT as dayhikes from Denver.

This summer I'll be leading a series of day hikes on segments 1-6 of the CT.

These will generally be long, 10-20 mi,

fast paced on-trail hikes requiring a car shuttle.

Trail shoes recommended.

CMC 10 essentials still required but keep it to a bare minimum.

They will also be exploratory hikes since

the leader had not done the whole route of each hike.

However the routes are well marked and mapped out and

the leader has excellent route finding skills.

These will also be doggy hikes for

well behaved, friendly but tough mountain mutts

able to handle the distance and elevation gain/loss.

This hike will do Segment 3 as described in

The CMC Guidebook, The Colorado Trail, 8th Edition.

It goes from Co Rd 126 & FS Rd 550 mostly due West to

FS Rd 560 just South of the junction with FS Rd 550.

Car pool from Denver to the West end TH at FS Rd 560.

Drop a car(s) there and take FS Rd 550 back to

the East end TH at Co Rd 126 & FS Rd 550.

Hike to the West end and drive back to the East end.

Stop to eat on the way home, time permitting.

Register by emailing leader. 

I encourage everyone to be willing to drive if at all possible.

We will probably need as many drivers as possible with the dogs and car shuttling.

Please specify:

- General hiking strength and speed and ability to maintain a fast pace,  2+ MPH on trail.

- If you are bring a dog

- If you can drive and if so, are you ok with dogs riding in your car for the whole drive or car shuttle part.

- Member number - makes adding members to the roster much easier for the leader!


Trip is CANCELLED due to the Lime Gulch fire burning in the area.
